There was a White Privilege Conference held this past week in Philadelphia Pennsylvania.
It's been held every year for 17 years and one of the speakers this year was Jim Loewen, a professor at the University of Vermont where he's been teaching race relations for 20 years.
He gave a 53-minute speech at the White Privilege Conference, which actually got him accused of abusing his white privilege.
Now keep in mind that this is a conference where people are there to essentially admit their white privilege and are trying to do something about it.
Professor Loewen has spent his career trying to improve race relations, so for him to be criticized for exercising white privilege while giving a speech against it struck some as kind of ironic.
Struck me that way, too. So I called him up.
